Edith Massey in Female Trouble

Female Trouble

1974 NC-17

Directed by midnight-movie legend John Waters, this campy, twisted follow-up to Pink Flamingos isn't for the squeamish. Cult icon Divine stars as spoiled teen Dawn Davenport, who leaves home when her parents refuse to buy her the one Christmas gift she covets: cha-cha heels. After a sexual encounter with a sleazy derelict (also played by Divine), Dawn turns up pregnant and soon becomes a career criminal with a taste for murder.
